Leonard Cohen: Live in London

By the time Leonard Cohen “hung up his fedora” in December 2010, at the end of his triumphant two-year world tour— his first in 15 years—he had performed an astounding 240 shows in front of euphoric, sellout crowds around the globe. At age 76, Cohen is still creating new material. This definitive concert, recorded live on July 17, 2008 in London’s 02 Arena, contains 26 songs and illustrates the mastery of the legendary Cohen, whose rich baritone voice and poetic lyrics have somehow become even more sublime and meaningful as he’s aged. “[Cohen] now brings a wry fatalism, a bemused wisdom, an apocalyptic charm and the astonished delight of the long-distance runner who finds himself crossing the line ahead of the pack. Live in London presents Cohen at the very pinnacle of his artistic power” (Greg Quill, Toronto Star). http://www.tjff.com/film-info.php?id=412
